Cooks at Sicilian Pizza and Pasta hand-toss made-to-order New York–style pizzas with more than 25 toppings such as spinach, bacon, and sundried tomatoes. Using ingredients from local distributors, chefs slice and plate hearty baked ziti and lasagna for pairing with amply stuffed calzones and wings in barbecue, mild, and hot. Patrons can sup in the shade of an umbrella on the outdoor patio or indoors, where floor-to-ceiling front windows cast light on red and green walls, a flat-screen TV, and framed photographs whose strangely lifelike occupants sneak bites of garlic bread when diners aren’t looking.
